After a successful 2016, it has been announced that Solid State Supplies, is expanding its electronic component distribution support team with the aim of providing even higher levels of engineering and sourcing support to customers.
The company is taking on a group of post-graduate engineers, so therefore Solid State Supplies’ team will have double its previous capacity, not only to offer engineering collaboration to its existing customers but also offer its value-added services to a wider set of customers in 2017.
In parallel, the sourcing and obsolescence team has also been expanded to bring the benefits of Solid State Supplies' extensive product portfolio to more UK customers.
Jon Baxter, Sales and Marketing Director said: "We are very firmly a service business that prides itself on understanding and being close to our customers. Through this expansion we will be able to serve our existing customers even better, while bringing new customers on board. Customers really value our obsolescence service that solves their supply-chain challenges with an assured supply of hard-to-find material."
Solid State Supplies' Sourcing and Obsolescence service began following the acquisition of Ginsbury and provides support to customers seeking hard-to-find or end-of-line materials for their continued manufacturing.
Where a manufacturer's C of C is not available, Solid State Supplies partners with a number of independent test labs to test the device to manufacturer's specification and can even build custom circuits so the device can be proven in the end application.
Baxter added: "As counterfeiting becomes an increasing challenge for our industry, Solid State Supplies saves our customers significant time and money by offering an assured supply of quality components, saving them the cost and risk of redesign or using components from an unverified source."
